two writers discussing habits

don’t you feel guilty for not getting much done?

i’ve a few journals with notations all over
they need me

i have (pause) written, as tho i’m going to finish it shortly
they need me

and things with boxes around them and stars, exclamation points and lines with arrows directing to what’s ‘Next’, i guess to warrant urgent completion
they need me most

so i stare at the page, waiting for the page to talk
forgetting about those lost words, ’cause that’s too much of a pain to search for them

laziness comes into this funk too.
pathetic role model for writer’s everywhere!!!
she laughs

i’d much rather sink into this scene…
the fire
a pot of coffee
and an ashtray between us
than to take all those loose ends and
connect the dots
to make sense.
